Will Hurricane Season Sizzle Or Fizzle?

While hurricanes typically don't threaten our area until late summer and fall, it always important to be prepared. Several forecasts have been issued and it shows that an average to above normal season is possible. In case you missed it, we have already had one named storm.

Sunshine and Rain – A Perfect Holiday Weekend to Make Memories

It's finally here! The start of the summer season! And as usual weather in late May can be quite fickle. Unsettled weather will continue into the Memorial Day weekend. Although it may not be 100% dry, any showers we receive should not dampen any outdoor plans. So expect a decent weekend, but if you were hoping for it to be a sunny, warm and rain free each day, you will be disappointed. Friday will be the warmest day of the holiday weekend as a breezy, dry westerly wind will negate any seabreeze from forming. Highs will climb into the mid 70s...

Unsettled Weather Continues, But Will Memorial Day Weekend Be Dry?

Damp and dreary weather will continue this week as several low pressure systems move through. In addition to the occasional rain, we also will be dealing with some coastal flooding. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect Wednesday night and again Thursday night (between7-10pm) as we enter a new moon phase along with steady onshore winds. Tides will run around 1 foot above normal which will cause some road closures in the usual areas on the island. The surf will also be increasing. Waves run 2-4 feet on Wednesday and up to 4-6 feet on Thursday as the low pressure system moves offshore.

Temperatures will soar well into the 80s to near 90 across South Jersey however, southwest winds will keep the coast a bit "cooler".
